I should have a least gotten a free dinner

So I just got back from the doctors and I feel a little like I should file a police report.

But then they'd do a rape kit.

I shoulda been a librarian

We accidentally scheduled our cruise during spring break. Turns out, I'm not really a "party" girl. I spent a lot of time trying to avoid areas of the ship that smelled like liquor.

This was some of the milder nudity...

Aren't we a cute couple? We celebrated our 9th anniversary on this trip. Love ya babe. (we should have just skipped year seven)It was mostly cold, no laying out on the deck for me. In this picture I'm wearing pants, a hoodie, drinking hot and still freezing.

We hadn't really planned on going to formal dining night, but we were there with all Blaine's family and changed our mind at the last minute. We had to improve on the formal. We looked ridiculous, but had fun. Our cruise went to Ensanada, here is a obligatory group pic in Mexico.

Despite it being a little cold and little too partyish for this old prude, we had a great time. It was so nice to have no schedule and sleep whenever I wanted to. Those interior staterooms are nice and dark any time of day.

Oh, and then I got layed off.

While I was gone, they decided to close the dealership I work at. The most awesome part was they didn't even call me. My sister did. She is married to our cashiers brother, that's how she knew, then an hour later my mom called and told me. She received a letter in the mail notifying her because she is a local Saturn owner. Nice huh, hearing it twice from other people before my own boss tells me. I was only gone for three days before everyone but me knew.

So here's to laying around at Seven Peaks Water park with the kids all summer.

I got my husband to watch Twilight

and he wondered if it is harder for Edward to be around Bella when she's menstruating.

Who's lookin'

Yesterday I did something very foolish, something I know is very bad for me. But it was for the sake of vanity.

But everyone knows anything is OK for vanity.

I went tanning.

And yes, I was naked. (I didn't plan ahead and bring a swim suit, sorry, I know it's gross to put your bare parts on the bed, just tell yourself they clean them between each use)

I got just a teensy bit burned on my stomach. And by teensy bit I do mean I look like I faced nuclear testing.

Have you ever heard fat burns faster. Yeah, that's true.

Anyway, as a form of cheap entertainment, I was letting the kids press on my stomach and see the white fingerprints that were left behind. I know, best mom ever, right? It didn't take long for Ben to realize in a modest swimsuit your stomach does not get burned, so what was I wearing, a bikini. Note: to my kids bikini = Satan.

Naturally, I couldn't tell them no, I was not wearing a bikini, I was naked, so I just brushed it off saying, it doesn't matter what I was wearing I was all alone in a little room. No one could see me. (And I really, really hope that's true, you know what you hear about those places.)

Roxy immediately replied, "Yeah, that's true, no one could see you....EXCEPT Jesus and Santa.

Meet Tyson

My sister April's baby was born just fine last Friday, I'm just a little slow.

We are so excited about this little guy. He is so sweet to hold, I am seriously addicted to him.
I must be, because last night I dreamt I wanted one. Yikes!
(We are totally done having kids)

The secret

Yesterday I was at my kids elementary school when the principal made his daily announcements. Part of it included a quote; I wasn't listening well enough to remember who said it.

"The secret joy of work is excellence."

I really do believe that, in fact most the time, it's the ONLY joy in work.

Heck is for people that don't believe in gosh
